Tellus Equipment Solutions, a company formed specifically to become an authorized John Deere agriculture and turf dealer, closed on an acquisition of Ag-Pro Texas. The acquisition includes all of Ag-Pro Texas’ 21 dealership locations in central and south Texas.
“We are excited about the opportunity to serve farmers, landowners and businesses throughout central and south Texas,” Troy Taylor, CEO of Tellus Equipment, said. “It’s an honor to become the authorized John Deere dealer for this area of Texas and we look forward to building lasting relationships that are rooted in trust and service with our customers and in the communities where we operate.”
In addition to the acquisition, Jeff Donaldson joined Tellus Equipment Solutions as chief operating officer. Donaldson will lead Tellus’ sales, customer service, marketing and operations functions. He previously served as chief operating officer of Darr Equipment and as CEO of Adobe Equipment, which was sold to Darr Equipment.
“I am very excited to join the Tellus organization and the John Deere family of dealers,” Donaldson said. “Our mission at Tellus will be to partner with our customers to provide industry leading equipment, quality parts and on-time service for an unparalleled customer support experience.”
